Opel has launched the all-new Grandland - stylish and modern SUV. However, it's entering one of the most competitive segments. Does it have enough going for it?
Opel really hasn’t had the easiest time since General Motors left the country last year, but with new global owners Peugeot, this brand is determined to win back the confidence of its customers here in South Africa.
Things are off to a good start: it’s only June and already the brand has grown in market share, launched the Crossland X, established a 35-strong dealership network and now, has brought to market its new flagship model – the Opel Grandland X. The new Grandland X enters a tough segment, absolutely teeming with strong competition, and will need to be more than just a good car to woo buyers.
In this review, we take a look at the engines available (hint: there's only one), the ride quality, boot space, infotainment system and of course, the price.
